Solo. From near Spittal of Glenmuick. Went along track SW of Sptittal of Glenmuick, taking the path that follows the NE shore of Loch Muick to join the track on NW side of Loch Muick. Thence along the track to Glas-allt-Shiel and up the path NW past the waterfall to the bridge over the Glas Allt. Here I took the narrow path used by stalkers that goes on to the broad SE ridge of Creag a’ Ghlas-uillt and up this ridge to the summit. This path is marked by cairns and upright stones and takes a route avoiding boulders as much as possible. Continued to summit of Top of Eagle’s Rock.pwbellarby12/09/2003
